Vineyard Notes

Heavy winter rains followed by mild spring weather (few evening frosts or daytime heat spikes) allowed slow, even ripening for red varietals to develop deep color and intense flavors and character. Multiple sources of specialty toasted French oak, along with the addition of Zinfandel, give the blend its unique and lively spice quality.

63% Syrah
31% Merlot
6% Zinfandel

Food Pairing Notes

Silver Buckle Ranchero Red pairs beautifully with hearty, intensely flavored dishes such as roasted tomato and red bell pepper pasta or Mongolian BBQ beef.
